Helloo everyone, how about a healthy start to kick start the new year? Of course, I am all in for a healthy journey, please trail behind me if you believe so as well. Healthy however doesn't refer to day-in-day-out eating raw vegetables or boring vegetable dishes. I certainly can't, but a vegetable dish is a must for all of our meals. Again said, not the bland, no taste dishes but one which can be heightened for the spicy-tangy Asian touch, akin this raw salad - carrot and cucumber tossed with lime juice, fresh grated coconut, chillies and coriander leaves. Oh-yum, I am certain you will agree health is wealth.
1 carrot - remove skin and grate
1/2 cucumber - remove seeds and grate with the skin on
2 tbsp fresh grated coconut
1 red chili - sliced thinly
1 green chili - sliced thinly
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves -shredded/sliced
4 shallots - sliced thinly
Lime juice - as needed
Salt to taste
Toss everything together.
Enjoy the salad as a side with or whatever you prefer.nava-k's facebook page.
